There was also a very different weather map for News 24 at launch, where land was bright yellow/orange and the sea was a very vivid blue. (This was still on the days of symbols for weather, rather than the current shading to denote cloud cover - which I have to say years on, I still find extremely vague.)
... it is refreshing to see the UK and Europe presented in their 'standard' proportions. The current
projections that are used (and have been for a decade I think ?) are awful .
